What the care home does well
The communal areas of the home are comfortable and provide a good range of areas for service users to use. The home was found to be well maintained and clean throughout. Service users appeared to be clean with coordinated clothing and service users spoken with were positive about the staff group.
What has improved since the last inspection?
There has been a significant improvement in the provision of care plans. These were now more detailed giving an overview of the service users assessed needs. Service users had been issued with Terms and conditions of residency contracts which gave them information regarding their stay at the home.
What the care home could do better:
There continues to be some poor and potentially dangerous practice in the administration of medicines due to not all staff having received accredited training. This requires urgent as staff with medications training must on duty throughout each 24-hour period. Quality assurance systems were seemingly not established and documented monitoring of the home by visits made on behalf of the Provider were absent.
